Foundation: 2001

Mission: The Institute of Biostructures and Bioimaging (IBB) of the National Research Council (CNR) has 100 staff units distributed in Naples, Catania and Turin (70 researchers / technologists) and carries out translational research for the development of new tools for prevention, diagnosis and targeted therapies. To accomplish these objectives, researchers studying biomolecules from a structural and functional point of view collaborate with experts in preclinical imaging that study cellular and animal models of human diseases and clinical researchers carrying out experiments in humans. Research activities include basic research, a laboratory for the preclinical imaging of small animals and clinical research areas carried out in collaboration with universities and other research institutions. The combination of design and testing expertise, both in vitro and in vivo, of new diagnostic and therapeutic agents with expertise in multiple imaging modalities (including MRI, optical imaging, PET / SPECT, ultrasound, CT) provide the interdisciplinary bases to carry out a truly innovative research in the field of molecular imaging and personalized therapy. The IBB has a consolidated experience in the research of biomarkers of various pathologies, design and synthesis of molecules able to interact with certain biomarkers and preclinical validation of the molecules developed.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal
